    I think you just solved it yourself.

    Look at it again.

    First we have non-OSS that refuses to download
    Second we have OSS that refuses to download
    Third we have the fact that you can't get to the openSUSE forums.

    Check your internet connection.

    ???

    Try to add the following line to /etc/resolv.conf :
    nameserver 208.67.222.222

    Try to add the following line to /etc/resolv.conf :
    nameserver 208.67.222.222
    where will i add this? all i see in resolv.conf are these..

    ### /etc/resolv.conf file autogenerated by netconfig!
    #
    # Before you change this file manually, consider to define the
    # static DNS configuration using the following variables in the
    # /etc/sysconfig/network/config file:
    # NETCONFIG_DNS_STATIC_SEARCHLIST
    # NETCONFIG_DNS_STATIC_SERVERS
    # NETCONFIG_DNS_FORWARDER
    # or disable DNS configuration updates via netconfig by setting:
    # NETCONFIG_DNS_POLICY=''
    #
    # See also the netconfig(8) manual page and other documentation.
    #
    # Note: Manual change of this file disables netconfig too, but
    # may get lost when this file contains comments or empty lines
    # only, the netconfig settings are same with settings in this
    # file and in case of a "netconfig update -f" call.
    #
    ### Please remove (at least) this line when you modify the file!

    If it's DHCP then it would be over written. Check Knetworkmanager. Read this NetworkManager - Users
